of september 11th, after this had happened, but before he knew that ambassador stevens had been killed, came out, criticized the statement that had come out of the cairo embassy about the -- about the demonstrations there. then got a huge amount of criticism. as the facts began to pile up against obama, the romney campaign stayed somewhat silent, and has still to this day not made a lot of the problems that developed. >> the debate is built entirely around foreign policy. if romney doesn't take advantage of that platform to raise questions, again, poke holes in the president's arguments -- >> greta: why isn't he now? this is coming from the super pac. >> i think the romney campaign thinks it can wait that long, at least some people in the romney campaign, think it can wait, and want to do his foreign policy right before that debate, so there's some bringing together of these arguments. i think the time is now. you had governor romney asked about this last week on his plane. you know, how has the administration handled it? he said, look, it's too early to judge it. that's not the right answer

chris stevens. frankly, i don't see this as a huge red flag because a dc3 there i don't think in any way would have prevented these four murders. but your thoughts? >> i agree with that, as far as a dc3. but in light of all the other facts that are coming to light now, you had multiple attacks, even the british closed their consulate. you had the red cross, the international red cross was there. they had an rpg, you know, hit at their facility. so there were multiple, multiple attacks, i think more than 12 or 13, that definitely said they needed security. they requested security more than one time. so i don't know how leading up to 9/11, our administration -- our state department didn't take the appropriated steps to make sure that american citizens abroad were secure. that's the number-1 job of the federal government, to keep the citizens secure, whether here in the continental united states or overseas. >> ambassador rice has written a letter that says network part, this is a response to u.s. senators who want to know why she went on tv right afterwards and said it was the video. she s
